I first introduced you to the shu uemura Blossom Dream Spring/Summer 2013 Collection with my review of the Unmask Palette in Pink, a gorgeous compilation of neutrals in an impeccable matte formula. The other piece I have from the collection is one of the two limited edition Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte Lipsticks in Bright Pink.
It is a very saturated bubble gum pink. Unlike a lot of matte lipsticks that have been released lately this one truly is matte.
It is very pigmented and goes on with full opaque colour. I think this is probably one of the most full on PINK lipsticks I’ve seen.
The shu uemura Supreme Matte Lipstick in Bright Pink is not forgiving. You will want to ensure your lips are exfoliated, moisturized, and it perfect condition to wear this bold shade. It is a little hard to get the lipstick to to look even as it wants to cling to any unevenness on your lip surface. Surprisingly even though it is matte and does emphasize and dryness and lip lines it doesn’t feel dry on the lips. It actually feels very comfortable. I don’t feel bold enough to wear this shade right now when my lips are not in optimum condition from winter dryness. This is a spring/summer release though and when my lips are in better condition I am hoping I will feel wild enough to wear this bright bubblegum pink! If you have healthy lips, love pink, and love making a statement then this lipstick is for you!
shu uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte Lipsticks ($36) are available exclusively at Holt Renfrew.
